Yes, and boy have I used it.  My original lockup post is actually about
killing one process.  Next time there is a lockup that occurs while
reading your mail (or retrieving from IMAP), try a "ps -ef | grep ev"
and I bet you'll see more than one evolution-mail process.  Kill the one
with the lowest PID who doesn't have a PPID of 1, and evolution will
come to life.  If the summary seems to lockup, kill the extra
evolution-executive-summary process.

But, as I said, 1.2.1 seems to have cured both of these bugs.
